What People Are Saying

"A non-verbal lady came sailing with us. Her care giver asked her if she was happy. The caregiver said if you like this give me a thumbs up. The sailor struggled and it took some time but slowly those thumbs came up. She really loves to sail and comes out with us once a week. "

— SherriLee

"Sailing means the world of change in my life for the better. It’s freedom for me and helps my depression. I couldn’t imagine my life without sailing or these people. I’m excited every day that I get to sail. Sailing has changed my life and put my health in better condition. I love the feeling. "

— Ted - one of our sailors with Cerebral Palsy

"Sailing has become a lifelong passion. The freedom of independently taking the helm. Winning my first Regatta took sailing to a whole new level. Thank You to Adaptive Sailing Kelowna for providing me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and explore something I never thought possible. "

— Ean who uses a sailor who uses a sip and puff to sail
